US ALTERNATIVE band Room Full Of Walters have run into controversy in America with the inclusion on their Word distributed album of the song "Jeffrey Dahmer Went To Heaven". The song, about the infamous American serial killer, was inspired by an interview Dahmer had with Dateline NBC before his execution when he claimed to have received Christ. Some Christian retailers have been sending the Room Full of Walters album back simply due to the title's inclusion on a cover sticker. Said the band's vocalist Jamie Woodson, "There are some Christians who don't want to see Jeffrey Dahmer do all that stuff and still get in, when, 'Hey, I've been going to church every Sunday.' The human mind doesn't want to think that's fair." CR
